REVIEW: Mean Girls (2024 film) - Starring Angourie Rice and Reneé Rapp
In 2024, the iconic teen comedy "Mean Girls" makes a triumphant return to the big screen, this time infused with the vibrant energy of a musical under the direction of Samantha Jayne and Arturo Perez Jr. The screenplay, penned by Tina Fey, adapts her original 2004 comedy, which was inspired by Rosalind Wiseman's book "Queen Bees and Wannabes." This new rendition follows the storyline of Cady Heron's foray into North Shore High School, navigating the treacherous world of high school cliques and the notorious Plastics.
Sixteen-year-old Cady Heron, portrayed by Angourie Rice, emerges from a homeschooling life in Kenya to face the challenges of North Shore High School. The film integrates the contemporary landscape of social media and mobile technology into the narrative, successfully modernizing the tale while retaining its essence. Cady's entanglement with the Plastics, Regina George (Reneé Rapp), Gretchen Wieners (Bebe Wood), and Karen Shetty (Avantika), sets the stage for the drama to unfold.
